Eating curds and drinking from the bubbler in south central Wisconsin
HA! We love the word play game here too! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Maybe I'll make up a bunch of cat centric poems for the next fest and see if they get put up along the road during Fermentation Fest, Brian.
I can be silly. It's a specialty of mine.Have a fabulous day. ♥
And thank the heavens you are, Sandee.
This is interesting and I like it! lol Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend.
I thought a bunch of thrown out words were pretty interesting too, Michelle.
Oh the fun I would have with this exhibit. When I was a high school senior, I was in charge of the outdoor bulletin board where I posted major weekly events. After awhile I created made-up quotes that only silly teenagers can make. I got in trouble for posting The grass is green. or Green is the grass. Something like that. It didn't occur to me that the statement could refer to drugs. hahahaha. An advantage to being an old lady is that I can be silly and not care about the looks, most of the time.
These were discarded words which I guess is an exhibit in itself. Words no one wanted like the island of misfit toys. I'll look for a picture of the poems they were used for but since they're really hard to capture I don't know if I kept any of those photos. You know the old Burma Shave ads, it was like that, you'd see maybe five lines down the road from each other on the side of the road. You got in trouble for posting stuff on the school bulletin board, hilarious. Doesn't grass mean someone who rats out someone too? That would also fit. I remember an old Comic Strip Presents vid called Supergrass. They obviously didn't know their 1980s alternative British comics.
Love the way you are documenting your surroundings with photography.
Discarded words? Really? Who would throw away fertile yeasts and bacteria? I would love to see both accepted and discarded along some of the boring roads we travel.
Haaa, Sallie. I'd like to find all (or some) of the roadside poems these words were a part of. They were placed along the road in between pasture performances and farm forms and field notes and works of art (which this was) along the Farm/Art DTour. I only remember one about Burma Shave which I think was the original ad from way back when. (According to Wikipedia, 1926 in Lakeville, Minnesota.)
